How to be a mermaid at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park

WEEKI WACHEE, Fla (WFLA) – It’s one of the oldest attractions in the Tampa Bay area and this month Weeki Wachee Springs State Park celebrates its 70th birthday.

The park is famously known around the world as the place where mermaids hang out and entertain guests throughout the day.
